Greensboro is a vibrant city of nearly 300,000 with a rich cultural heritage, especially in its historic downtown area. Antique shops and art galleries dot the South Elm area, and dining options range from eclectic food trucks to fine Southern-flavored dining. The International Civil Rights Center and Museum, housed in the Woolworth's building, tells the story of the sit-in movement. Greensboro's network of trails offers a variety of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors while being physically active; Guilford Courthouse National Military Park and Bur-Mil Park are just two of many locations with walking and biking paths and a wide variety of recreational opportunities.
Jewish life in the Triad (Greensboro/High Point/Winston Salem) dates back to the early 1900s and has grown to become the dynamic community residing here today. The Greensboro Jewish Federation, recognized as a leader of small Jewish communities in the US and Canada, is distinguished by a high level of volunteer leadership commitment, its creativity and innovation, and an annual campaign of over $1.5 million. Greensboro has active Reform, Conservative and Chabad congregations, as well as B'nai Shalom Day School and American Hebrew Academy, the only international Jewish college prep boarding school in the world.
Since its founding in 1891, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro has pioneered bringing a strong liberal arts education to North Carolina. Founded as a women's college, UNCG now serves a diverse population of over 20,000 students on an idyllic campus and offers more than 100 undergraduate, 61 master's and 26 doctoral programs, including the Joseph M. Bryan School of Business & Economics.

About Guilford College:
Founded in 1837 by The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), Guilford's approximately 2,000 students continue a tradition of liberal arts education with a focus on social justice on a historical campus that once served as a stop on the Underground Railroad. Notable campus events include the Guilford Bryan Series, a nationally renowned speaker series that brings international luminaries like Desmond Tutu, Mikhail Gorbachev, Colin Powell, Madeleine Albright, Ken Burns, and Toni Morrison to Greensboro throughout the year. In addition, Guilford hosts the Eastern Music Festival each summer, a five-week program featuring more than 70 music seminars and public performances.
